  • 1.  Checking 802.11 client type in Instant AP

    Posted May 22, 2017 09:11 AM

    Hi guys,

     

    When checking the 802.11 client type in an Instant GUI I can see the following:

    What are the options for the Type field? In the previous output Type is GN, but how can I discern if the client is G or N?

     

    Regards,

    Julián

    "a" means the client is connected to the 5ghz band
    "g" means it is connected to the 2.4ghz band
    "N" means it has connected at 802.11n rates (above 54)

    Hi Colin,

     

    But in the previous output Type is GN, but how can I discern if the client is G or N?

    And if my client is AC, would I see AC or just A?

     

    Regards,

    Julián

    It is an N client.  G or A just indicates the band.

    Hi All !!

    I now this is an old thread is quite old but I find it current for my needs.

    in instant APs with command show clients I see client types:
    . a-HE
    . AN
    . g-HE

    what is the x-HE meaning ?  Is it related to High Throughput mode?

    also with show ap bss-table
     I see the colum

    band/ht-mode/bandwidth

    and values : HE

    Please what are the possibile values and meaning?

    Thank you

    HT = High Throughput, which means 802.11ac https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_82_Web_Help/Content/ArubaFrameStyles/VirtualAPs/Configuring_a_High_Throu.htm
    HE = High Efficiency, which means 802.11ax https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_85_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/virtual-ap/high-effi-aps.htm
